"You'd never see the ghosts, not properly. You'd only catch a glimpse of their shapes out of the corner of your eye and you'd hear their stolen, vengeful scream; an ear-piercing shriek to steal the lives of anyone who heard it."
For Craig, the trip to the cabin was supposed to be a quiet retreat from his hectic city life where he could concentrate on writing his latest novel. For his wife, Susan, and his two kids, Jamie and Ava, it was supposed to be a weekend vacation.
For all of them, it became a nightmare.
The hugely anticipated follow-up to Matt Shaw's best-selling horror story The Cabin.
"I sat up and rested my back against the soft padded wall. I wonder whether the padding on the wall is to stop me from hurting myself, as they had explained when I first got here, or to drown the sounds of my banging and screaming as I beg for them to let me out; not that they ever will."
Deemed unfit to stand trial after murdering his family, Craig was sent to the very Asylum (centered around the ghost stories) which led to his downfall. Here he hoped for nothing more than peace and quiet, as he struggled to get to grips with what he'd done, but the vengeful spirits had other ideas as they set about revealing their secrets to him.

Not scary but more unsettling!
The first book I listened to of Matt Shaw's didn't like at all but decided to give him another shot/chance and glad I did - this isn't a great story but it is measurably a better story and plot than the last one (A House in the Country)!!
Joe Bronzi is ok but his voice doesn't have much depth to it!
The young boy and the horror attached to him all his life! A bit disjointed at times.
Kinda monotone at times. Didn't make the story gripping as such!

Weird but disappointing
